Package Summary

Documented

Tools for directing, throttling, selecting, and otherwise messing with ROS topics at a meta level. None of the programs in this package actually know about the topics whose streams they are altering; instead, these tools deal with messages as generic binary blobs. This means they can be applied to any ROS topic.

Command-line tools

This package provides the following command-line tools:

  • mux: multiplex between multiple topics.

  • relay: republish data on one topic to another.

  • drop: relay a topic, dropping X out of every Y message.

  • throttle: relay a topic, but limit republishing to a maximum bandwidth or rate.

  • transform: transform a topic (or topic field) using a Python expression and publishes the result on another topic.
